Brainerd City Council: Other Fourth of July parade routes being considered


Brainerd City Council President Mary Koep said she remembers “years ago when there was no (Brainerd) Community Action” and the 4th of July parade ran down Thirteenth Street to the fairgrounds. Mayor James Wallin said he remembers the parade originating at the Franklin School parking lot where he “could step out his front door and watch.”

“We have had plenty of different routes for this parade,” said Wallin during Monday night’s Brainerd City Council meeting.
